"DOT is a large organization that touches every North Carolinian," said Wall. "I'm looking forward to this experience and to helping make transportation policies that help improve quality of life.”

Wall recently began his second term as mayor, a position he was first elected to in 2007 after two years on the Burlington City Council. He has worked for the Alamance-Burlington School System for 31 years and is currently assistant superintendent for auxiliary services.

In addition to serving as mayor, Wall is also a member of the executive committee at the Piedmont Triad Council of Governments, the Aerotropolis Leadership Board and co-chairman of the N.C. Metropolitan Mayors’ Coalition Public Safety Committee. He is a former member of the Piedmont Authority of Regional Transportation Board of Trustees.

Wall is a native of Burlington. He is a graduate of North Carolina State University and also has two masters degrees from North Carolina A&T University, in Safety and Driver Education and Educational Administration. He is married and has two children.
